Latest Available JDK Version

The JDK needs to be configured in your profile settings. You should use the latest available JDK version for the following reasons:

  • Performance: Newer versions perform better, allowing you to simulate more users on one machine.
  • Stability: There might be stability issues when using older JDK versions, such as encountering deprecated functions. Those deprecated functions might result in unpredicted results during a load test.

There is no impact in using a different JDK version than the Oracle Forms client applet is using. During recording, the selected JDK is only used within the Silk Performer Recorder process, not by the applet. During replay it is used in the virtual user runtime.
